National Community Development Services (NCDS) leads multimillion-dollar economic development fundraising drives, and the firm is partnering with Craig Settles to bring NCDS’ success to broadband. Both believe that there are more people and organizations than communities realize that are able and willing to financially support broadband deployments to their communities.
NCDS President Tom DiFiore presents highlights of the firm’s methodology that has raised over $1.6 billons for 500 communities in 46 states. Mr. Settles consulting expertise, philosophy and thought leadership in broadband strategy dovetails with NDCS in a four-step service that opens broadband funding opportunities as well as helps networks’ long-term financial successes.
Many communities let the “lack” of money stymie their broadband dreams. Mr. Settles’ and NCDS’ lead communities through a creation orientation to produce an asset that boosts the economy, increases local government efficiency, improves healthcare delivery and transforms education. In addition, NCDS leaves a system in place to facilitate other community economic development fundraising projects.
These combined services draw their origins from “Show Me the (Hidden) Money for Community Broadband,” Mr. Settles’ recent Community Broadband Snapshot Report.
I don’t condone the violence on our streets or in our homes or work places. I believe that anyone that commits a violent act against another except in saving his own life or the life of someone else, should be punished under the laws of their country. Violence in the Black community is the result of being put in a controlled environment and all necessities taken away and we are forced to survive. Anger builds up as we are denied real jobs that can pay for food, clothing, shelter, and recreation. This feeling of hopelessness is passed down to the younger generations. Alcohol and drugs are introduced as a anesthesia to numb the effects of the reality of their present situation of being homeless, no money, no food, but everyone can put on for a cheap drink or a bag of reggie (weed). Parents and children smoking and drinking alcohol creates a powder keg with a short fuse. Generic food and medicine are introduced into this controlled environment and we become #1 in all health issues. Then you flood the community with quick kill automatic weapons of mass destruction and make the readily accessible. Distrust is at an all-time high. You can’t trust the doctor, the police, politicians, justice system or each other. You can’t relate to most of them because they don’t look like you and they can’t begin to image what you are going through. and if they did look like you, you won’t trust them. Frustration, hopelessness, and fear mounts.....................

Often times I hear White conservatives tell me about the issues in the Urban community. Most times I try not to pay too much attenion to what they are saying, because it makes me sad and angry. Today I am going to hit on a few points that show where the doors to discussion and agreement are WIDE open for conservatives in the Urban communty.
Today we hit n the big issues, education and immigration. We are also going to spend some times on restoration of rights and ecomomic opportunity.
Our special guest is Veronique Jones, an artist who specializes in Ketubahs.
The ketubah is a unilateral agreement drawn by witnesses in accordance with Jewish civil law, in which they testify that the husband guarantees to his wife that he will meet certain minimum human and financial conditions of marriage. Once the ketubah is completed, the procession proceeds from the groom's table to the bridal throne, accompanied by singing and dancing.
Veronique Jonas (nee Soriano) was born in Lubumbashi, Zaire, presently the Republic of Congo. As a young girl, Veronique relocated with her family to South Africa where she received a Bachelor of Art degree from the University of Cape Town. As a young wife and mother Veronique once again relocated. This time to Dallas, Texas. For close to 20 years Veronique was Art Director and teacher to hundreds of Elementary and Middle school students at the Solomon Schechter Academy where she was known to draw out a child’s hidden inner potential to communicate through the medium of art.
Veronique still resides in Dallas with her husband of 40 years. Her 3 children are now grown, providing Veronique with yet another viewpoint of life as that of a grandmother.

Please join us for a conversation about Creativity, Community, and Cultural relevance. We will be engaged with two dynamic guests. The first half of our program, we will interview the talented vocalist Ozara Ode. Ozara has started a Gofundme campaign to take her Nina Simone adaptation to Broadway. After reaching much success in Atlanta with the production “In the Key of Nina” during the summer of 2015, Ozara is on a mission to further honor Ms. Simone’s legacy. We will be talking more with Ozara to find out what she is doing and how we can support her.
The dialogue for the second hour will be driven by Pittsburg raptivist, Jasiri X who has been steadily climbing the rungs of the underground ladder worldwide. Jasiri made major noise with his debut single “Free the Jena6”. Tonight he will enlighten us about Black Liberation Theology and share what else he has in store.
We will contemplate the fate of a center that was designed with the spirit of Comrade Tupac Amaru Shakur in mind. Built to be a hub of Creative Community collaboration and cultural education, it has long been shut down and now the building is for sale. We look into ideas about what happened, why, and what we can do differently to insure that similar efforts flourish. Welcome to the Blaq Hour.
